in the next few years. >> yes obama will have to shame folks and play politician as we all know that obama doesn't like to do. but he'll have to play the politician role to slip things down the cracks. there is no sitting down to have a conversation about this. it's about what can i hold over your head, and i believe immigration is the strongest one. that could be used to hammer them. >> john: and the g.o.p. needs it, i do want to say that i support impeaching any president who made douglas schulman head of irs. it was president bush who appointed the man. some folks are saying that the g.o.p. will use this and it can hurt the president but there is another scandal going on right now closer to home involving mayor bloomberg. i want to get to this because a year ago this week we were embroiled in the controversy over news corp and what mourdock may have been doing. now the other story is how mayor bloomberg had this technology that seems to have been useed to spy on other people, boulevardberg's lp terminal were used by bloomberg journalists to gather information about wall street banks and

president obama a black eye and taking shots at secretary clinton than actually tracking down the people who performed these outrageous acts of terrorism and bringing them to justice. instead of securing our diplomatic post, republicans want to debate who changed talking points. >> however, the "the washington post" fact checker column today gave mr. obama four pinocchios for claiming he had described benghazi as an act of terror back on september 12th. he did not affirmatively state that the american ambassador died because of terrorism. when given repeatedly opportunities to forth rightly declare benghazi was an act of terrorism he ducked the question. finally former vice president dick cheney appearing on hannity last night called benghazi a, quote, coverup that he said is still ongoing, shep? >> shepard: james rosen in washington tonight. thanks. the senate foreign relations committee today approved a new ambassador to libya. her name is debra k jones. the president nominated her after the death of ambassador chris stevens. she is a career diplomat who has served in several middle easter

we have right now is an embarrassment for president obama and a warning to him, if you will. you know what? you've got to be really careful up and down the line because even seemingly small things such as this, and make no mistake about it, it was no small thing in and of itself to target one side of the political spectrum with say we're going to make things difficult for them, particularly in this election year. serious business, but is it a case of people down the line and only those people involved? now, obviously many republicans and some who are not republicans think there had to be other people involved. what president obama needs, he doesn't need me to tell him what to do, but what he needs to do is he needs an immediate and real fast and completely thorough investigation into this, and however bad the news is put it out, be transparent about it. >> what is the character of an investigation like that? does he name somebody from outside the administration to come in and some sort of special investigator capacity? does he count on, as his remarks indicated tonight, directing secr

inappropriate criteria to single out groups for extra scrutiny. this morning, president obama is directing treasury secretary, jack loo, to find those responsible. >> reporter: good morning. here on capitol hill, the grilling is already under way to some degree. the acting head of the irs sat down with the senate finance chair. and what was described as a pretty tough meeting. that's one of three committees here that wants to investigate. we now have the full report on the irs scandal. here's what's new. low-level irs employees made up rules that were unfair. their bosses weren't paying attention. so the rules stayed in place for a year and a half. >> we want to know exactly who knew what and when. how high up did it go? did the white house know about it? >> reporter: the extra scrutiny left some groups in limbo for three years. but even today, the irs is not agreeing to all the changes the report recommends to fix it. the bottom line is, it was wrong, president obama said in a statement last night. he's ordering the treasury secretary to put all those fixes in place quickly. and the attor

will go pool, you win. he will be stepping down in early june. and the congressional oversight to which president obama refers has barely begun. in fact, miller himself is still scheduled to testify on capitol hill on friday. let's bring in nbc white house correspondent peter alexander and david k. johnson, columnist for peter, you got your hands on the e-mails. there they are. you've read through them. what do we learn from them? >> first of all, chris, here are the 100 pages of e-mails, okay, and what they effectively do is lay out the jostling that took place between intelligence officials and diplomatic officials. these e-mails show exchanges between officials at the white house, the cia, and the state department over exactly what should be said in those talking points, the ones would be first provided to a house intelligence committee, but also provided to susan rice on that sunday following the benghazi attack. and i think the most significant lesson that we learn from reading these documents at this point is at least according to a senior administration official,
